    The Good...

    As I read these stories, I was struck by how much they felt like a paranormal version of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. The voice had that down-to-earth, southern charm that instantly makes the reader feel like she's listening to a friend tell a tall tale on the back porch or perhaps lying next to the young man on the cover, listening to his life story.

    The conflicts in each of the stories were rather simple and easily resolved by the characters, though they do grow increasingly challenging in each book. This was something I thought was perfect for the age range the books are written for.

    Along with a compelling story is a strong message of a young person finding and growing into an understanding of his relationship with God. Due to the character voice, the Christian message comes off as a sharing of ideas rather than a sermon and adds to the charm of the entire series.

    The Not-so-good...

    The only thing I could really find fault with is the overuse of cliches. However, given the main character's background it's a natural extension of his personality and therefore acceptable.

    The Overall...

    In my opinion the combination of down-to-earth story-telling in a classic style and near effortless conflict resolution made The Last Werewolf Hunter: The Complete Series by William Woodall a perfect middle grade read.

    Supernatural Coming-of-Age Christian Fiction!

    Description:

    Young Zach Trewick comes from a long line of loup-garou, (werewolves), but he will do anything to escape the transformation. Unfortunately, his family does not feel the same way, pushing him towards his genetic destiny. So Zach has no choice but to flee his home and seek his excommunicated uncle Justin, whom he has never met, to break the "curse". Along the way he learns the history of the loup-garou, the true meaning of family, the strength of courage, love and trust, and finds a spiritual relationship with God that aids in his quest for normalcy.

    Review:

    The Last Werewolf Hunter is a three-part supernatural novel, (Cry for the Moon, Behind Blue Eyes, and More Golden than Day), with a Christian twist. I really loved William Woodall's writing style, his clever phraseology kept me rapt with interest throughout the entire book. The level of action was moderate and there was little-to-no violence or gore, however I still found the story to be a page-turner, especially due to the dialogue. I found the characters well-developed, realistic and relatable, Zach, Justin, Eileen, Cameron, Edith and Jolie were some of my favorites to read about - particularly in book three. I thoroughly enjoyed all three parts of the series, although I really liked books two and three, where Zach started to "grow-up" and make decisions about his own destiny. I approve of the message it conveys to the young adult crowd, and wish that there were more books out there like this one. Everyone has their own "inner monster" to deal with, but it is up to the individual to choose how to manage it; with or without faith. I will definitely be looking out for more of William Woodall's books! Recommended for middle school through adult readers.

    Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

    *** I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER by William Woodall is a set of three short stories. Book one is about a boy named Zach Trewick who is destined to be a loup-garou (werewolf). He is not happy with his family and their decision to make him a monster and he decides to run away. Zach tries to find his uncle Justin the only person close to home who denied the werewolf gene in the family. In his travels he finds more than he hoped for and found a spiritual relationship with God. The story continues in book two introducing Zach’s cousin Cameron. Zach learns about love, family and trust. Book three is probably my favorite. It has myths and legends and gives the background story of wolves & wolf hunters. This set of books is not all about mean, violent, and bloody wolves, so if that is what you are looking for this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a story about a boy who learns valuable lessons about family, love, friendship and God this is the book for you. I recommend this book to a pre-teen or adult. I truly enjoyed this book.
